Black Desert preps ‘flirtatious’ Valentine’s event, new guild boss

    
5
Today’s Black Desert update is a wee one in preparation for next week’s holiday.

“Valentine’s Day is coming up next week and you will see the world of BDO to be a bit more flirtatious than usual and seasonal decorations reflect all the love in the air… xoxo,” says Kakao. “But not all is love and flowers; there is also a danger lurking.” That ancient danger would be a new guild boss called Ancient Puturum, now summonable in Valencia for titles and loot.

Additionally, there are new login rewards, a few tweaks for crafting, no more annoying combat stance reminders for highbie toons, and a fix for that poor goat in Serendia. Expect class adjustements all around, though the bulk are for Witches and Wizards. Also! “Fixed the issue with unnatural falling motions Characters made when falling off the bridge handrails near Heidel” – because the problem was the unnatural motions, not the falling! Hey y’all maybe don’t climb on the handrails? Doesn’t seem entirely safe? Just a suggestion.

Can I post things on the AH at the price I want to sell them for?

Can I trade any non-self-bound items with friends (ie crafting mats or unused gear)?

Considering coming back, but not if it’s still a massively-online-single-player game.

Nope.

Nope.

And yeap you still gotta work for your supper, no moochers around these parts. Just a buncha hard working individuals all striving to become stronger and bring that strength to the various in game group activities. Somewhere Ayn Rand is smiling down on us from heaven.

Always seem to miss the actually pretty big changes in favor of the small ones. There’s three big changes this week:

1. Guilds can now do payouts without owning a node, so non PvP guilds rejoice! If your guild has over 30 members you can now do a once a week payout for 40% of the guild bank so hunting sea monsters, doing missions, and all those other wonderful PvE activities can now reward the whole guild.

2. PEN items now automatically go to preorder if a preorder exists. This lets players set the market on PEN items. This is a pretty big shift in policy as before bidding system always kept the ultra rich and the rich on equal ground.

3. Most important in my opinion is the fact that the “Last Sold Price” for items on the AH now reflects their preorder amounts. This lets you see if an item goes to preorder what that preorder amount was. Previously you had to guess and that made things difficult. If you now lose a preorder bid to someone else you can see where theirs was and adjust accordingly. This can have deep impacts on the game economy as people attempt to compete with listed preorder amounts for even small items, but especially contested items like hards/sharps/memory fragments.

Another big change (at least IMO!) is the ability to view outfit mix and matching before buying now. This is a big one for me because costumes are so damn expensive and it’s nice to see how they’ll look with other pieces now.
